I just saw someone write on twitter "what do you want to accomplish before your next birthday?"
Of course my initial thought was "I want to be a size 8"
My second thought was GEEZUS - when am I going to stop wishing that I lost weight? When is my goal for the year going to be something then other then getting skinny? To finally figure out this whole getting healthy thing?
I have so many other things I want to concentrate and dedicate my free time to. If I took all the time/energy I spent thinking, planning, plotting, wishing.... how to lose weight, and invested it in something else? My life would be better than it is now. There's so much more I want to do, and yet I'm always 100% occupied with this goal. It's starting to get in the way of me actually living the life I want to.
I'm not needing to do an"restart" because for the last 6 months I've made great strides with my healthy way of living, but I need to take it up to the next level. The eating. I've got the exercise this down pat, but as the old rule says "it's 80% what you eat, 20% exercise"
Dedicating myself back to my fitness pal, and following Bob's Skinny Rules.
I often commit to things half-ass. I do my training half the time, I'm consistent with doing my workouts, but not the whole kit and caboodle. Sometimes I feel I give up on something once it gets hard, I take the easy way out, which never gets me what I really want.
Which is what I am going to do starting now.
